Refugee & Immigration Services

Housing, job training, advocacy, language skills and citizenship

Overview Helping refugees and immigrants find peace, safety, friendship and independence.

From the Italian and Polish neighborhoods of the past to the Afghan, Burmese, Congolese & Ukrainian communities of today, Rochester has been enriched by those who add their music, art, food, and tradition to our community mosaic.

Support to Rochester’s immigrant community has been a cornerstone of Catholic Charities' work since our founding in 1917. Over the past 35 years, more than 15,000 refugees have resettled to Rochester, NY with the help of CCFCS and our many partners.
